The Problem with Hockey

I maintain that the reason Hockey is not as popular as it could be is that the uniforms are not flattering in an athletic sense.  Look at football, America's #1 sport.  The players wear padding which exaggerate the shoulders and chest, while leaving the lower body wrapped in skin tight trousers.  Hockey pads the lower body to such a degree that the players look as though they should be entering the local Wal-Mart as much as the ice rink.  I think in the future, when they perfect body protection with as thin a fabric as possible, the game will be even faster; and ratings will rise.  My son is offended by any unflattering drawings of hockey players, by the way.
